What Makes a HandPicked Gift Special: A Thoughtful Approach to Student Care Packages

At HandPicked Gifts, we believe that every gift is more than just a collection of snacks and items. Each care package is carefully curated with love and intention to provide a meaningful experience for your college student. Here’s what sets a HandPicked Gift apart:

1. Thoughtful and Purposeful Gifts

We believe in the power of connection, which is why we typically include at least one larger, shareable item in our gift baskets. This encourages students to use their care package as a way to connect with new friends. Whether it’s a bag of gourmet popcorn or a box of specialty cookies, these shareable items help foster new relationships and create a sense of community.

2. Staying Ahead of Trends

Understanding what college students love can be challenging, especially with ever-changing trends. That’s why we do the hard work for you. By keeping a close eye on the latest trends on platforms like TikTok, we ensure that our care packages include the most popular snacks and items. This attention to trends helps students feel seen and known, making the gift even more special.

3. Including Officially Licensed UNC Products

School pride is an essential part of the college experience, and we want to celebrate that. Each of our gift baskets includes at least one officially licensed UNC product. These keepsakes serve as lasting reminders of home and school spirit, providing a cherished memory for your student long after the consumables are gone. Whether it’s a UNC tumbler, card wallet, or another branded item, these products help maintain a strong connection to their college life.

4. Partnering with Local North Carolina Companies

We take pride in supporting local businesses by featuring high-quality products made in North Carolina. By partnering with these companies, we not only elevate small businesses but also ensure that each gift basket contains at least one unique, locally-sourced item that reflects the rich culture and craftsmanship of our state. This commitment to local partnerships adds a special touch to our gift baskets, making them truly one-of-a-kind.

More Than Just a Gift: A Message of Care and Encouragement

At HandPicked Gifts, our mission goes beyond providing a collection of items. Each care package is thoughtfully designed to lift your student’s spirits, remind them that they are cared for, and encourage connections with others. By including trendy items, we help students feel understood and appreciated. The keepsakes remind them of your love and support, while shareable items promote new friendships.

HandPicked Gifts is dedicated to creating care packages that are as thoughtful and unique as the students who receive them. By partnering with local North Carolina companies, staying ahead of trends, including officially licensed UNC products, and curating purposeful gifts, we ensure that each package is a special reminder of home, love, and support.
